Luis Manzano on having a commitment with Jennylyn Mercado: 'We're close to that'


091311-luis_main.jpgAlthough they’ve been exclusively dating for the past five months, Luis Manzano maintained that he and Jennylyn Mercado are yet to make their relationship official. But at this point, he’s happy to say that their bond has grown stronger than ever. “The same thing, wala pa naman kaming formal commitment. Hindi pa naman namin napaguusapan. Pero with everything going, we're close to that. Pero hindi lang kasi napaguusapan na, ‘Oy, tayo na ha?’ I don’t know [kung bakit hindi pa namin pinaguusapan yun]. Darating at darating tayo sa puntong yun. Definitely hindi kami nagmamadali. Siguro timing lang ang kailangan,” said the accommodating actor-host in an interview with Push.com.ph last September 8.

When asked what makes Jennylyn different from other girls he used to date, Luis refused to compare them out of respect to his previous relationships. “It’s weird but I’d rather not compare or mention other names in terms of [mga taong] naging parte ng buhay ko.”

It goes without saying that Luis is physically attracted to Jennylyn; but what he likes the most about her is that they get along really well and are very open to each other. “Naniniwala kasi ako na sa buhay ng tao, ang kagwapuhan at kayamanan, pwede maubos ‘yan. Pero ang conversation, tawanan, yun ang magtatagal sa inyo habang buhay. Hindi lahat ng tao maganda o gwapo habang buhay. ‘Yang kilig-kiligan na ‘yan, mawawala ‘yan at one point or another. Pero the fact na yung kasama mo, nakakatawa kayo, nakakapagusap kayo about anything and everything…Ay, ang sarap ng feeling!”

No doubt about it, the pretty morena is one of the few people who inspire him these days. “With Jen, wala kaming ibang ginagawa together kundi tumawa. We talk and laugh a lot. For me yun ang importante eh, yung nakakatawa kayo. Isa talaga siya sa nagpapasaya sa akin ngayon.”

Although they’ve already had their share of romantic dates, Luis wants to keep that part of their relationship private for now. “Secret! Basta huwag na yung mga detalye na ganyan, sa amin na lang yun. But we never fail to have those moments that we appreciate each other,” he added.
